More cute animal pictures


This is Dawn’s new critter. It’s some variety of Mexican hairless, I think. Good luck paper training that puppy, Dawn!

Me, I just harvested the peppermint plant. It smells like a packet of Wrigley’s in here. What the hell am I going to do with a crapload of mint? Honestly, how much tea can one weasel drink?

Dawn–very cute. It looks placid in that picture. . .are looks deceiving?

About the mint–there’s a great Indian chutney mostly made of mint,or you could make tabbouleh (cracked wheat with mint and parsley and stuff.) I’ve got recipes, or you could try googling them. . .

Cute kid, congratulations Dawn.

Weasel, I’m shocked, mint tea?

Mint Juleps 🙂

Can we get a little drunk hiccup weasel face sometime in the future?

Mint? Whole roast lamb springs to mind. Just be sure to clean it properly first. Nothing worse than picking wool from between your teeth.

Ooo – peppermint! You could dry the leaves and then crumble them up for later to brew as an herbal tea. I love that stuff and drink it all the time.

Congrats Dawn!

Heh, Allen. Back at the old WordPress site, I experimented with icons to indicate my state of mind at time of posting. I made smaller versions for here, but ended up not using them. Like

Spearmint is the one traditionally used in mojitos and mediterranean cookery.

Peppermint is the stuff that’s better in tea and that smells like Christmas candycanes.

Dawn, welcome to sleepless nights and anxious days. Also the greatest feelings in the world when the little one runs up and hugs you.
